Exceptional in every way. A creamy, long-wearing lipstick with staying power and shine. One coat is just enough.
Elizabeth Arden’s Exceptional Lipsticks come in 13 shades. This review is for the color Red Diamond 57.
This lipstick comes in a black, rectangular tube with gold trimming in the middle.
Red Diamond is a stunning, orange-based red with golden shimmers.
Of the 3 lipsticks in the Cult Favorites box, this one is the least creamy. The color still is extremely vibrant and opaque, but the formula doesn’t give your lips the moisture that the other 2 lipsticks do.
That said, the drier formula makes the lipstick last longer–about 4 hours if you aren’t eating or drinking.
This is a beautiful red color with a unique finish, perfect for the holidays.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This lipstick is drier than the other Elizabeth Arden lipsticks, and so doesn’t glide on quite as effortlessly. But compared to lipsticks in general, application is easy due to the opaque color.
For $19.50, you get 4 grams of lipstick. MAC’s lipsticks cost $14.50 and contain 3 grams. This puts Elizabeth Arden’s lipstick at almost the exact same price-point.
